Final Score: New York 98, Boston 95 (OT)

Hartford, CT (Sports Network) - Jason Kidd hit a go-ahead jumper with 1:47 remaining in overtime as the New York Knicks spoiled the Boston Celtics' 2012-13 preseason opener with a 98-95 win at the XL Center.

Carmelo Anthony netted a game-high 23 points and Chris Copeland delivered 21 off the bench as the Knicks improved to 2-0 in preseason play. New York posted a 108-101 victory at Washington on Thursday.

Kidd's 23-foot jumper gave the Knicks a 94-93 lead, and the veteran point guard sank two free throws shortly afterward to extend the margin to three.

Boston closed within 96-95 on two Kris Joseph foul shots with 47 seconds left in overtime, but Copeland made two free throws on the other end to seal the win.
